the regulatory environment will look like next year. they don't know what demand will look like next year. and so, because of these uncertainties as a result of the fiscal cliff and the fact that we haven't had any policies really coming out of congress and the white house to really fix this, it's all been monetary policy, the federal reserve has really been the only one out there, the only game in town to really provide stimulus for this economy. we don't have an energy policy. we haven't had a budget in three years. as a result, businesses are waiting to see what happens in this election, and they're waiting to see what their lives will look like tax rates, regulation, etc., they're upset about the healthcare expense, so they're waiting until after the election to really decide if, in fact, they will hire new workers and put new money to work. i think we really are in standstill right now. host: here's the headline, "wall street braces for an obama win." mitt romney was wall street street's candidate, a former private equity executive, committed to lower taxes and less regulation, who would nev
. we realize politicians don't create job but at least enhancing the environment that can create jobs. >> brown: do you think there's much enthusiasm? >> as a conservative i am much more enthusiastic about mitt romney than i was john mccain. i thought john mccain was just an extension of george bush. we had had enough of that. >> brown: but polls show enthusiasm remains a question mark here for mitt romney and for the president. he also has to worry about criticism from his left. people like duke economics professor william garretty who cites the almost one in five blacks out of work here and says the president simply hasn't done enough to help. >> that's pretty staggering actually. i mean, we're approaching the kinds of unemployment rates that existed in the united states at the height of the great depression. in the african-american community in north carolina. >> brown: he has decided to sit out the presidential vote >> i'm going to vote for the other offices on the ballot but i'm just not going to cast a vote for the presidency >> brown: you're not? no brown: you feel okay i feel
to snore. an out of touch millionaire has just declared war on schools, the environment, unions, fair pay. we are all on our own if romney has his way. he is against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. i strongly suggest that you wake the -- up. >> remember the heidi game, people. this election is not over. wake up. joining me, gwen moore, ari melber and brentin mock and dave zirin. the heidi game reminds us it is not over until it is over. despite these great polls, what are we looking at in the next month? >> i thought you were going to go with samuel jackson, i want the snakes off the plane and i would like the superpacs being the snakes. we could do a lot of samuel l. jackson. >> i will strike down with great vengeance and furious anger those who will attempt to destroy my brothers. >> a lot of you know my name is the lord when i lay my vengeance upon thee. that should be obama's slogan for the first debates. >> they don't know the second hour of nhp is a drinking game. >> congresswoman, i'm almost sad i put you at this table. >> really, i'm not ready to pop open the champagne cork
to be in this high-risk, high-profile tense environment? nobody loves that. >> no but i think certain people rise to the level of the performance. bill clinton you always got the feeling that he was very happy to be there. >> jennifer: it makes me smile thinking about it. you also say that governor rom any has a few of these flaws as well. he could be overly cautious he lacks spontaneity. he appears awkward and whiny. and he might be boring. if you were comparing the flaws of either one of those, which would you rather be? >> i think i would rather be obama. however, i do think they are fairly evenly matched. and in some ways there are similarities. i see both men as being men more about the intellectual side of things and not the emotional side of things. nay are both a little bit aloof. but the clip we looked at where mitt romney loses it about the rules, that was the most impassioned we have seen that. but isn't it interesting he is not getting passionate out of issues, he is getting passionate because he feels like somebody is cheating him out of his time. >> jennifer: exa
and the environment. we're america's natural gas. >>> a discovery that nasa could only hope for. evidence of fast flowing streams on the surface of mars. denton abel is a plan stair expert with the american museum of planetary history. he joins me live from new york. denton, we've heard about water on mars. people are really excited about this one. why? tell me. >> before we've see water from space, we've seen the evidence of large-scale flows. now we have proof on the surface. our robot geologist is doing its job very well. >> what's amazing is that they're finding the water could have been almost hip deep. what does that suggest? >> this would have been a rushing stream, coming out of a deep canyon in the wall of this big crater, a hundred mile crater that we're in. the rim has this long canyon about 30 meters deep. an alluvial fan comes out of that spreading material from the top into the bottom of the crater. that's where we're finding these rounded pebbles that indicate a strong stream was there. >> which is really remarkable. look, that is a picture of mars there. the more black and white o
in and say i have a big compromise with the enemy. it's not going to happen. it's a terrible environment and the big deal that needs to get done. acknowledge the reality, let's do the deal, but a small cause a recession. extending the policy to the extent possible and hoping that we get it passed. that's our goal. let me talk about the theory to get your reaction. but as long as the discussion about tax reform is an ongoing argument about the bush tax cuts, -- >> i'm so tired i can barely stand it. >> that is exactly the point. the point is that as long as you have extended the bush tax cuts, only half of this is about the bush tax cuts, but in the public discussion, it's the bush tax cuts. so as long as you extend them, conversely, if you let them all go, does that change the framing of this or that we are no longer talk about the bush tax cuts but we are talking about the tax code. if you think it's not working come with sit down and fix it. >> i'm 100% agree that we should be talking about the tax code. it should be something that we believe in. that is long overdue. it's just dangero
at the end of 2014 was prefaced on the idea that the surge would have created some better environment from which it would make sense we could leave because things would be better. if that promise is wrong and things after the surge are worse than before the surge, if things are not going to get better by the time we are set to leave, then why are we sticking with that as still being the time to leave? when the pentagon announced the end of the surge last week, when they announced the surge was over, they talked less about blunting taliban momentum and more about how the surge helped us train lots of afghan security forces. in theory, lots of trained afghan security forces is a way afghanistan could get more safe. but right now it's also a way americans get killed. by the afghans we are training and arming. afghan troops are turning around and killing american troops they're supposed to be working with at such a rate now that the training and joint operations between the two forces were halted this month. and have only now started to scale back up. that's the circumstances in which 68,000 a
and once it gets done, it produces an environment in which all the numbers we are talking about, "a-team" 40. as you want, you want 80% of nonwhite voters. those voters represent the 20 present as they did last time. the internal composition of the white vote is changing in a way that makes it more accessible for him to get there. to me coming have to look not only at education but gender. it basically creates four quadrants. if you look at 2008, noncollege white man. a noncollege white women, he will drop. the fourth quadrant was the college-educated white women. in all polling, including ours, tcs holding a majority. if obama can hold that 80% among the minorities, with it is what reagan won in 1984. i will end with two quick points. one for each party. it is not a comforting message for democrats as well. the general trends is allowing to win a majority with a smaller number of white people. they are also winning a number of this majority. as you look at this, 65 and 66, 76280, 93 and 94, and each time, they suffered a fairly catastrophic decline in their vote share among whites.
wanted to drop out in my class let that be a problem. if you create an environment where they want to be, education nation, i saw a video, massachusetts and it is unbelievable. 24 different career choices and veterinarian clinic. 16 day auto shop. the list goes on but it is different. not more of the same. there's one thing in the report that i think although it wasn't the focus is so important and it was mentioned by both analysts, the early intervention. i am a believer in systems. you can't take a piece of a whole system. even change dramatically one piece and assume the whole thing will change. i don't believe that is true. the thing about public education in america that is troubling to me is when they say no system can produce anything other than what it was designed to produce. in this country when we graduate 75% of the kids year after year after year unless you are african-american or hispanic is closer to 50% as the report points out the rate doesn't fluctuate like the dow jones average. it is constant because the system was designed to do that. what we have to do is talk about
to fatal work injuries -- these are bls figures. exposure to harmful substances or environment. 9% of injuries have fatal work injuries due to what the caller was talking about guest: -- talking about. guest: that is right. although it, these aren't just injuries. -- these are just injuries. the we do not look at illnesses. host: so that would not be included. guest: that would not be included. and and lives will have a long latency period typically, so we're looking at a key events. -- acute events. the things you see on this chart are things that happen immediately. it is some kind of violence or fall or contact with equipment. host: exposure to harmful substance would be a one time event? could that include a berndt? guest: it could. we have fires and explosions. a burn would more likely fall into that category. host: when you see the commercials for asbestos and our practice, etc., with asbestos exposure -- exposure be included in the bls statistics? guest: generally not. that will be a latency issue. we only look at immediate injuries. we're looking at something over a short
the ability to cause us taxpayers to have to pay them for the right to protect our environment and our water supply and our climate and human rights and wages and things like that. so this is absolutely outrageous. if we could go back to a system of one person, one vote, and have a real free press that enabled us to communicate and inform each other this would be a wonderful idea. unfortunately we're not there right now, so political parties in my view allow us to work together around the shared agenda. and the green party is really the one political party that is not funded by corporate money, by money that's coming from special interests. so in my way it's a way -- view it's a way for us to work together on our lives, future, education, our health and environment. host: according to the latest fcc records you received a recent installment of about $160,000, part of the matching funds still in place for those candidates who agree to accept matching funds. is that a enough money to spread the green party message? guest: we have a different way of approaching this. the big parties use tv adve
candidate sort of feel the words and the environment before you really put them to the test. part is about building confidence and helping someone work their way into their stride. so i think typically yes you're running through those questions and then you're kind of up on your feet. and then you go from there. you rework the questions. you see how you're presenting piece by piece. it all comes together. >> jennifer: how important is this debate prep for president obama because romney has been debating a lot this year. just real quickly. >> i think it's very important. this is the highest influxion moment of any campaign, particularly a presidential campaign. and so he's pretty good on his feet but again every answer is a minute and a half. you have to be hone and sharp and get your few points across that will then be covered by the media and form the broader public's opinion of what happened. >> jennifer: exactly. so interesting. i'll be watching. great popcorn moment. that's democratic strategist jill alpe
you get into that environment is a lot easier for them to visualize where they can get benefits by focusing on the voter registration as opposed to trying to persuade this small slice. i don't know if it is six per cent or 9% of our purse wadable but you're going to focus on them but we have a far better science now in understanding and a lot of is informed by the psychology research and so the science of the mobilization turnout has gotten much better it's still pretty vague and it's reinvesting in a lot of mobilization techniques because we have learned in the last decade how they work as we have two separate things you sort of know once you get somebody to implicate voting by the two per cent and now we have better targeting techniques to figure out who you talk to and about what what message or targeting but the big campaigns do targeting and analysis on the front end of the allows them to understand far more precise clean way for their turn of targets and they don't need to talk to until who the persuasion targets are and if you are narrowing your universe the people you're
. >> it was a work environment that i wanted to get out of and i did. >> david parkway remembers going to the >> i would have assumed someone would have come on much quicker. >> he and his frepped both agree the sentence should have been stiffer. >> she has a love for animals? it's confusing. what went wrong. >> they hope she won't be allowed to be around animals. >> more than 500 volunteers are coming together in the district at the recreation center today for a major renovation. live in southeast where the event is just getting under way. >> this is a huge day for the community. you mentioned 500 volunteers. there are actually more than 00 here rolling up their sleeves ready to give the recreation center and the space around it a complete makeover. it hasn't gotten this type of attention since 1998. and i'm joined now by mike, one of the maybe guys leing this effort and talking about what's taking place behind us. the purpose behind this. >> absolutely. this is an annual event that we have where the building industry association comes together and
's so much less expensive to use tap water. >> reporter: d.c. says tap is better for the environment. so would bottled water drinkers switch to tap after this taste test? >> i might change, yes. >> i'm going to change, yeah. >> you can still vote in the water taste test to find out the next location, go to our website nbcwashington.com. and search d.c. water. wendy and jim just tasted and you picked -- >> i picked the bottled water, but they were perfectly fine. >> you actually picked -- >> i like the "a." >> i think only because the bottled one was a little colder to me. >> i'm saying that even the guys that said -- the folks who said they couldn't tell a difference, that's a vote for d.c. tap water. >> i agree. >> save you a lot. >> save you a lot, transportation costs, green, et cetera. >> i only drink tap water at home. >>> here's doug. >> 81 degrees out there right now. yes, getting ready for rain, i think, around the metro region. we have the rain just off to the west. and severe weather, including a brand-new severe thunderstorm warning. i just told you about the one in frederick
to the environment to taxation. elected state officials and corporate representatives close the door to press and public and to gather, approved the bills that will be sent out to america. americans have no idea they come from alec unless someone l exposes it. >> when i went to the alec convention last august, i remember going to a workshop and hearing a little bit about a bill they did in florida and some other states. there is a proposal to provide special need scholarships. i come back to wisconsin and what gets introduced was to write get ready. i know you have a shocked look. a bill to do just that. >> 26 alec members in wisconsin legislators sponsored the special needs bill, but the real sponsor was alec. the bill bore a striking resemblance to alec's model. have a look. >> he is not concerned that only alec's since bills into the state legislature. >> some of the legislation sounds so immaculate. when you read about why they're doing it, and another is a far different reason why something is coming forth and that is important the average person and, if they knew that a bill like this f
done is produce an environment in which for all the numbers talking about, the victory came to just to numbers. the 40. as you said to me 180% in the 08. if he matches that and they represent at least the toyota 6% they did last time he only needs 40 percent of whites. in fact, as they were saying, the internal composition is changing in a way that makes it more accessible from to get there. you know, to me you have to look not only in education but gender and basically it creates four quadrants. if you look at el eight college white man, not college white man, and on college what women. obama was at 42 or below. he will drop in all three of those quadrants this time. numbers are consistently running a little lower than they did in l.a., and on college men and women and the college men. the fourth quarter with a college-educated white women, and he won a majority of them last time. in all polling, including ours, he is holding a majority. so basically the math that gives you at this point for the republicans is that if obama can hold his 80 percent among the minorities, which he is
it strategically, facebook is like a personal, intimate environment, you want to have conversations with your fans, ask their opinions but twitter is just about spreading great information, you want to send videos, pictures, links to interesting articles and it will have your name on it, bring people back to your site. >> sometimes people feel like those things are pushy, like is there a way that you can send something out that you intrigue people and they kind of lean in and they go to -- >> it's got to be good. don't send boring tweets. don't -- it has to be related to what you're doing -- >> cut through all the noise out there. >> people need to want it. but if you're solving a problem for them and really speaking to a need, they are going to want to get those tweets. >> when you say rich and famous, how rich can you get on being a blogger? >> so let's say with the shoe example. you start to build a following. people start coming to your site who also have big feet and want to wear sexy shoes. you get a sponsorship, maybe somebody like 9 west or cole haan who has that size and has sexy shoes wh
the environment. one other interesting note on polling, if you average the nine states together in the various leads, almost looks identical to the national polls. five and a half point lead for the president, 49, 44 with rounding, which of course is where all the national polls sit around five points for the president. romney starts his morning in a state that hasn't been able to put into play, pennsylvania. he will speak to veterans at valley forge military academy in a philadelphia suburb. only public event of the day. he will be fund-raising in philadelphia, probably the motivation why he is in philly. slew of national polls show how damaging romney's remark on the 47% has been to his campaign. the most recent national polls trails the president by 5 to 8 points. instead of punching a national message, romney seems to be making the parochial argument. yesterday in virginia, warned an american legion audience that devastating job losses were coming if congress and the president go through with the defense cuts called sequestration. >> the impact will be immediate and significant here in vir

and safety to the environment to taxation. in alec task forces, elected state officials and corporate representatives close the doors to press and public and together approve the bills that will be sent out to america, but americans have no idea they come from alec unless someone like a mark pocan exposes it. >> when i went down to new orleans, to the alec convention last august, i remember going to a workshop and hearing a little bit about a bill they did in florida and some other states and there was a proposal to provide special needs scholarships and lo and behold, and i come back to wisconsin and what gets introduced? get ready i know you're going to have a shocked look on your face, a bill to do just that. >> 26 alec members in the wisconsin legislature sponsored that special needs bill, but the real sponsor was alec. pocan knew because the bill bore a striking resemblance to alec's model. have a look. but pocan isn't only concerned that alec sneaks bills into the state legislature. the intent behind the bills troubles him too. >> some of their legislation sounds so innocuous, b

of the environment committee a climate denialist and a republican senate which could dismantle the social contract and more. >> luke, seems like scott brown has a case of the mitts that he has to trade this difficult line between conservatives, the skoo ska leah question to me was really -- the answer was weird. he seemed to rattle off the names of supreme court justices as if to prove that he knew that they sat on the bench, but wants to appear as an independent but look, mitch mcconnell is going to be his boss if he gets re-elected, a "boston globe" poll says most voters think scott blown brown is heavily influenced by the gop, 41% think he's sometimes influenced and 37% think he's independent. >> goes back to how he got elected. originally his campaign in 2010 was the democratic -- not the democratic seat, not the kennedy seat, the people's seat. that appealed to people in massachusetts who wanted to shake things up as you saw in '06 and 2010 and around the country. what his issues will be how much will he be tied to mitch mcconnell in the gop leadership. when he came here in 2010 he was the pi
